If you want to make sense of our world then you have to seek out the right people, read the right books, listen to the good music, and watch movies.
One of the right people to listen to right now is Shoshanna Zuboff.
She wrote the book The Age of Surveillance Capitalism and how – as the first comment on the video below aptly put – the world is being transformed into a wide open prison.
If you’re interested in tech, ethics and our future then it’s worth taking 50 minutes and watching this video. Zuboff talks with such clarity on the digital systems we’ve built.
BTW, if I were to collect articles, videos, music, etc., that are essential for understanding tech, What Is Code? by Paul Ford would be on this list as well.
